Blog Recommendation: PennyRaine.com

One of the bloggers I follow, Penny Raine, has her own line of eBooks called Creatively Simple with a variety of  home-maker-friendly titles .  She also sells other eBooks specifically related to cooking.  Late last year, I purchased a package of her Creatively Simple eBooks for a ridiculously low price.  The eBooks are easy-to-follow basic instructional books with helpful pictures.  One of the titles that I particularly liked and plan to use soon is Creatively Simple:  How to Make Homemade Laundry Soap.  I have already purchased several of the items needed to make the soap and am just waiting for my current supply of eco-friendly laundry soap (purchased in bulk from Costco) to run low.  Other tiles from the series that really caught my attention were How to Make Homemade Bread and How to Make Chocolate Cobbler.  I have been making homemade bread for several months now and have a couple of favorite recipes, but I’m looking forward to trying the recipes in Penny’s eBook.  As for the Chocolate Cobbler recipe, I’m pretty much game for trying anything chocolate at least once.  (OK, maybe not chocolate-covered bugs!)

Penny has special subscriber-only sales.  Check out her store and, if you’re interested in ordering from her, be sure to sign up for her newsletter subscription for all of her great specials!

A Special Announcement from Cara, author of the Friendly Frugalista

The Friendly Frugalista has been up and running for a few months and things are going well.  I am pleased to announce the official launch of two additional sites that I’ve been working on!  Our family has been committed to homeschooling since our first child was born over 15 years ago.  Over the years, we’ve tried many resources, enjoyed successes, endured failures, schooled while moving or traveling, shared our journey with others, and learned from the adventures of other homeschoolers.  For a long time, I’ve wanted to establish a web site for homeschoolers to share with–and learn from–them.  But, I’ve discovered through my experiences as a blogger that it is much easier to add new information to a blog than it is to do so to a static website.  After nearly 3 months of trying out a variety of host domains, I finally came up with a balance that works for me (for now). I will continue to learn and grow as I go along and, perhaps, come up with a better plan.  But, for now, I have established a web site (hosted by Homestead) with information for homeschoolers *and* a blog (hosted by HostSo) to accompany the site.  I’m still tweaking things a bit to see how best to keep all 3 sites up-to-date without too much overlap, but the sites are finally up and running.  In a way, the new blog is like a homeschool version of The Friendly Frugalista.  If you are interested in homeschooling topics, please take a peek at these new sites.

Blessings, Cara

P.S.  In the future, I hope to upgrade this blog to a hosted site too.  But, I spent a lot of trial-and-error time on the other blog, so I’ve kept this one as is while learning the ropes.  It is a lot easier to destroy a non-published blog than a published one.  LOL!
